This 2 day mandatory certification is for anyone interested in using the ShopBot CNC router and VCarve CAM software. Participants will learn about machine safety and maintenance, proper material selection, and proper operating procedures for the CNC router and a brief introduction to the applications they interface with (VCarve, Fusion 360, Adobe Illustrator, etc.). At the end of the 2nd day, participants are required to pass all hands-on components as well as a written test. Members will then be able to use the CNC router for personal projects with minimal supervision after a final one-on-one project session which can be scheduled with one of our instructors.

Members may repeat the course at no additional cost.

This certification is an overview of CNC/VCarve usage and does not cover design-related instruction. Please check back for upcoming courses with more in-depth design education.
